在这里，你还可以一窥南北战争前的南方生活。岔路口（The Forks of the Road）是以前的一个兴旺的奴隶市场和大棉花种植园，保存完好供游人观赏南方的棉花奴隶主所制造的大量财富，以及棉花产业的宽广。
Step back into time at Mississippi’s Natchez National Historic Park. The Natchez American Indians were a mound-building matrilineal society of American Indians that all but disappeared after Europeans began arriving. However, their culture is preserved at Natchez National Historic Park. Here you can also catch a glimpse into antebellum Southern life.
The Forks of the Road, formerly a prospering slave market and a large cotton plantation, is preserved for visitors to appreciate the extreme wealth generated by Southern cotton slave-owners, as well as the sheer breadth of the industry.
Finally, you can get a sense of everyday life reading the diaries of a freed slave, William Johnson, whose townhouse is preserved.
